We travel with our Macaw, a green cheek conure, and a 28 year old cockatiel. They love to travel and vocalize in campgrounds to most peoples amusement.

Thanks for all the great input........
Taz (dog) always goes with me but I'm not real sure how Boomer (Bird) would handle the tiny trailer we travel in?
This gives me something to think about for sure.

We travel with a cockatiel (along with our 2 small dogs.) I have a new post asking about the procedures in travelling in and out of Canada with a bird.

we camp with an African Grey Congo. Grace is a great traveller and loves to camp. She doesn't scream, her loudest noise is a musical whistle, but mostly she is quiet.


Ours is named Gracie, travels ok sort of, a lot fewer feathers than your Grace. People often wonder what type of dog we have

I'd like to bump this old post and ask for pictures of there bird cage set ups.
Just curious on how most of you have them mounted to your trailers or motor-homes?
I'm playing with the idea of moving up to a Class B this year and thought this might be something I could look at now.

Wow, we have a 22+ yr old cockatiel and the vet told us he might make it to 25. We got Ricky at 6 weeks old and he's outlived two girlfriends and survived having a wing amputated from an earthquake injury. Tough old guy! He stays home if we travel, though.

He survived his mate who died last year at 30. They had hundreds of babies before we retired them.

You must have had remarkable specimens of cockatiels and taken outstanding care of them! The vet told us that females usually die younger, depleted by egg production. We actually had no idea of all their special dietary requirements until the second girl died. Congrats on your long-lived pair and all the "grandbirds."
